The impact you have made

By Rose Bugusu | Director

John's first day at our transitional home
John's first day at our transitional home

There is nothing encouraging and elevating than seeing the impact YOU have made in someone’s life!  We believe as you give and support any cause you are always eager to hear or see what has happened and as it goes seeing believing! 

We would like to feature John (not his real name), John came to us when he was about six months, we guessed as we had no information concerning him.  He was malnourished and there was completely no hope for his survival.  We were all worried and didn’t know what to do but took heart and gave him a temporal home for him to recover.  John was in his own world and other children would look at him and pity him, we didn’t know if he was going to survive.  Although we looked strong and optimistic but inside our hearts we were wondering if things would work out.

We managed to go to the hospital, he was admitted and after a week we came back home.  He was on diet as he was anemic and malnourished.  Changes were realized after six months and this is the time John could smile. 

YOUR MONTHLY SUPPORT changed this boy’s life. We wouldn’t have managed without your support, we would have lost his life instead.  You might not know how much you are doing in the lives of the needy, orphaned, abandoned and the entire community.  John recovered completely and is now in a family that has loved him. He is in fourth grade, doing very well in his studies.  It is not just feeding, providing education but it is saving lives and giving hope.  Our community has changed, because the orphans are attending school. They go home in the evening smiling because of the good environment at school, a meal and love they have been shown.  This wouldn’t be happening without you, this wouldn’t have materialized without your commitment, YOU have made it happen.

We have more than 130 children who need sponsors.  They are already in school and there is no way they can be like John if we will not expand our support family. YOU are doing great things, YOU are changing lives but we know you have many people around you who have never felt happiness in supporting a child in need.  We encourage you to share your good deeds with others around you to help in supporting these children who have no hope. Together we can
